I have just discovered an amazing North African restaurant in Brightons Kemp Town and I urge you to take the time to visit. A small Victorian terrace building in Manchester Street, luring passersby in to a warm, colourful, atmospheric interior, nicely decorated with colourful ceramics and pieces of carefully sourced furniture and bric a brac from Algeria. Authentic is an overused word (especially in Brighton) but I really feel like the owner was making an effort to bring the colours, textures, smells and tastes of another country to a small corner of this independant city.
Between the four of us I think we must have tried everything on the menu and it was good, very good, nothing left except the plates and very nice plates they were. I understand that the dishes and menu has been developed by the owner from original recipes and the mix of herbs and spices and the combinations of different tastes was excellent, each of us pushing our fellow guests to try each others choices. I have listed what we had below and excluding wine it came to £30.00, which if this restaurant was in London would be a whole lot more. So well done to the Blue Man Restaurant for a little bit of heat and colour on a cold wet January evening and thank you to the equally authentic Geordie 'Darren' who looked after us extremely well. We will be back!!!!
